After Exceptional Works, Hon. Malomba Esembe Knighted


MP, Buea Urban

The member of Paliament MP for Buea Urban Contituency, Malomba Esembe has been awarded the Knight of the Cameroon Order of Valour by Southwest Governor Okalia Bilai.

This was during activities to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Unitary State on Friday May 20,2022 at the Buea Independence Square.

Malomba Esembe who is now a Nknight is a Magistrate on secondment to the National Assembly where he is serving as the MP for the Buea Urban Constituency since March 2020 following the Legislative Elections of 9 February 2020

The past 20 years of his life, the 36-year-old MP out of 36 have been devoted to his highest passion - public service. After volunteering from 2002-2003, he passed the entrance into Cycle B of ENAM (Court Registry Section) in 2003. He completed in 2005 and was posted to the High Court in Kribi as a Court Registrar. In 2006, he was among the first set of civil servants who were appointed to the Ministry of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, which had just been created. He rose from a Chef de Bureau in 2006 in the Department of General Administration to ChargĂ© d’Etude Assistant which is the rank of Chief of Service in 2008 in the Legal Affairs Unit of the Ministry.

In 2008 he passed the entrance into the Magistracy Section, Cycle A of ENAM. Upon graduation in 2010 he was drafted into the Magistracy corps and posted to the Office of the Procureur General of the South West Region, Buea, as a prosecuting magistrate in 2011. Motivated by President Paul BIYA’s exhortation to young Cameroonians to be daring, he decided in 2019, in the higher interest of service to his community and the nation to run for the then vacant seat of MP for Buea Urban. On November 19, 2019, he was nominated by the CPDM party for the election which he contested on February 9, 2020 and won.


Strikingly, his professional trajectory has crisscrossed the three arms of government, namely: the judiciary as Court Registrar and later Magistrate,  the executive as staffer in the Ministry of SMEs and now the legislative as MP.

In the National Assembly he is the Vice chairman of the foremost Committee, the Committee on Constitutional Laws, and Executive President of the Network of Cameroonian Legislators for Road Safety. He is also the Chair of the SW Regional Committee in charge of Monitoring the Execution of the Public Investment Budget. In addition, he is a certified Elections Observer (KAIPTC, Ghana) and served on the Commonwealth Observer Mission to the Zambia General Elections in August 2021. He is an Elder of the Presbyterian Church Bokwaongo and a member of the Synod (highest organ of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon). He holds a post graduate degree in law and has attended trainings and conferences in Cameroon, Ghana, UK, USA. He is married and father of 3.


Two years after his appointment as Knight of the Order of Merit (May 2020), the Fount of Honour (fons honorum) in Cameroon who is none other than the President of the Republic, H.E. Paul BIYA has found his services to the nation, deserving of the superior accolade of Knight of the Order of Valour.
